This instrument runs both a CuKa microsource and a MoKa sealed tube. Larger crystals that diffract well can be run on this instrument. The anode can be changed on the fly in the middle of an experiment, so a dual-wavelength dataset can be collected as one experiment. This instrument is available for student use Saturday-Tuesday.
This instrument runs our brightest CuKa microsource, with a small beam, perfect for small crystals (~10-100 microns) or weakly diffracting samples. The Prospector is available for student use on weekends, and can accommodate small powder-diffraction samples for phase identification.
This instrument runs a MoKa sealed tube source with an enhanced monochromator to give a 7x improvement over regular sealed-tube sources. The Triumph is best for small inorganic crystals with high absorption. This instrument is available for student use Thursday-Sunday.
STOE’s STADI MP runs on pure Ka1 radiation (Cu- or Mo-sealed tube). Powder samples can be measured in transmission geometry and high resolution data can be collected for qualitative structural analysis. Powder samples can be measured in spinning capillaries or spinning flat plate transmission holders. High throughput options are available for measuring up to 30 samples. Additionally, this powder diffractometer has a unique furnace that allows in-situ measurements under any gases (e.g., corrosive atmosphere) as a function of temperature (up to 1600 C) or pressure (at least 20 atm). This instrument is available for student use all days.
